The answer to this question does not establish an attorney/client relationship nor does it constitute legal advice.
So you are saying that you intentionally refused to stop when instructed to do so and ran from the cop. In this state that is usually considered to be a Class C felony which carries a maximum sentence of 5 years in prison. However, the law here, and maybe in your state, actually determines sentences based upon prior offenses as well as the one you are found guilty of committing. Hence, your criminal background becomes important, not just for the prior attempt to elude the police but for any other criminal matters you may have committed. So it is not possible to say what you may be facing, except on the top end which is the maximum you could get for this type of crime.
Ask your lawyer this question. The lawyer has a better grasp of the attitudes of your judges and your background than this site could ever have.
